Do you find yourself at your computer for hours at a time? When you are not at home, you take your laptop with you?
Everything I do on my laptop has to be efficient and portable. I can’t afford to not have the best laptop to write. I have found what I believe to be the perfect laptop for any entrepreneur writer. But I will be honest with you. I am not a computer expert. I do know what would work well for me and would like to share that with you.
I have spent many hours researching this laptop, so you and I have what is needed to do the very best work.
I am a writer, a blogger, a poet, and an entrepreneur. With all of these hats, I need a laptop that is portable, lightweight, strong battery life, good storage, and a backlit keyboard.
I went in search of the one laptop that had all of the specifications I would need to do my work anywhere. I am sure you know as a writer your mind will come up with random thoughts for a story or a poem at any given time. It is so important to have a keyboard at my fingertips to jot these thoughts down.
This Dell XPS 13 9370 is the laptop that fits my needs. Right now you may be asking why the 13 and not the 15. The dell 15 weighs in at 4.6 pounds, and the Dell 13 weighs just under 3 pounds. For me, that throws the Dell 15 out the door.
Onto my Dell XPS 13 9370 reviews. I am so excited to share with you.

What I like about the Dell XPS 13 9370
- Infinity edge screen that feels like the picture is popping out at you
- 12 hours of battery life
- Super fast loading and action
- Lightweight at under 3 pounds
- backlit keyboard for working in the dark
What I don’t like
- The webcam in the center bottom of the screen makes it more difficult to get a center headshot
- Due to the sleeker design, Dell deleted the USB type-A ports
I have always owned a Dell. They have served me well and lasted a very long time. Each laptop becomes outdated long before I have issues with it. The Dell XPS 13 9370 is lightweight and very portable. It will fit in any carry on or backpack for a flight. It is easy to store away in the car when traveling. Or use it at home in whatever room you choose.
It is crazy fast and with a long battery life of 12 hours. And it is backlit for ease of seeing the keys in dim or no light. The keypad is sensitive, light and easy to operate.
You may have some questions. I am happy to assist you in finding the answer that you need.
